Reason No. 1: Richardson possesses elite running potential from Day 1
It should come as no surprise that the 6-foot-4, 240-pound specimen is a handful to deal with as a runner. Richardson blazed a 4.4 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine, cementing his status as the most physically gifted athlete to ever play quarterback in the NFL.
Being big is one thing. Being fast is another. But does he know how to use his God-given traits? Absolutely. Richardson exhibits superb vision and patience as a runner. He allows his blocks to develop and is adept at using his eyes to sell the RPO and play action snaps.
The first-rounder boasts long arms and a strong lower half that he uses to push the pile and find extra yardage. If you thought Jalen Hurts was a cheat code on the goal line, just wait until Richardson lines up under center in the red zone. I feel bad for anyone who rosters a Colts running back because the Indy quarterback will hog the touchdown production inside 20 yards.
